Companies worldwide are rapidly adopting Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), a design methodology used to connect systems as services, and Business Process Management (BPM), the art of orchestrating these services. Media organizations from news organizations to music and media download services to movie studios are adapting to SOA-style architectures, but have run into roadblocks unique to the media and entertainment industry. These challenges include incorporating real-time data, moving large amounts of data at one time, non-linearity and flexibility for workflow, and unique metrics and data gathering. The Service-Oriented Media Enterprise details the challenges and presents solutions for media technology professionals. By addressing both the IT and media aspects, it helps individuals improve current enterprise technologies and operations.

Electronic Hearth

Creating an American Television Culture

Author: Cecelia Tichi

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 9780195359985

Category: Performing Arts

Page: 249

We all talk about the "tube" or "box," as if television were simply another appliance like the refrigerator or toaster oven. But Cecilia Tichi argues that TV is actually an environment--a pervasive screen-world that saturates almost every aspect of modern life. In Electronic Hearth, she looks at how that environment evolved, and how it, in turn, has shaped the American experience. Tichi explores almost fifty years of writing about television--in novels, cartoons, journalism, advertising, and critical books and articles--to define the role of television in the American consciousness. She examines early TV advertising to show how the industry tried to position the new device as not just a gadget but a prestigious new piece of furniture, a highly prized addition to the home. The television set, she writes, has emerged as a new electronic hearth--the center of family activity. John Updike described this "primitive appeal of the hearth" in Roger's Version: "Television is--its irresistible charm--a fire. Entering an empty room, we turn it on, and a talking face flares into being." Sitting in front of the TV, Americans exist in a safety zone, free from the hostility and violence of the outside world. She also discusses long-standing suspicions of TV viewing: its often solitary, almost autoerotic character, its supposed numbing of the minds and imagination of children, and assertions that watching television drugs the minds of Americans. Television has been seen as treacherous territory for public figures, from generals to presidents, where satire and broadcast journalism often deflate their authority. And the print culture of journalism and book publishing has waged a decades-long war of survival against it--only to see new TV generations embrace both the box and the book as a part of their cultural world. In today's culture, she writes, we have become "teleconscious"--seeing, for example, real life being certified through television ("as seen on TV"), and television constantly ratified through its universal presence in art, movies, music, comic strips, fabric prints, and even references to TV on TV. Ranging far beyond the bounds of the broadcast industry, Tichi provides a history of contemporary American culture, a culture defined by the television environment. Intensively researched and insightfully written, The Electronic Hearth offers a new understanding of a critical, but much-maligned, aspect of modern life.

Arduino ist ein Open-Source-Projekt, das sowohl aus Hardware als auch aus Software besteht. Ohne Vorlesungen in Elektrotechnik belegen zu müssen, können Sie erste Ideen mit Arduino in kürzester Zeit umsetzen. Von Anfang an praxisorientiert und ohne graue Theorie führt Sie dieses Buch in die Arduino- Welt ein. Teil 1 »Erste Schritte mit Arduino« vermittelt Ihnen die erforderlichen Grundlagen, um die elf Projekte aus Teil 2 bauen zu können. Zunächst erfahren Sie, wie Sie die IDE verwenden und wie Sie Programme kompilieren und auf den Arduino laden. Schnell beginnen Sie mit dem ersten Projekt - dem Elektrowürfel -, das Ihnen den Umgang mit einfachen Bauteilen wie Leuchtdioden, Tastern und Widerständen zeigt. Danach erlernen Sie den Umgang mit analogen und digitalen Sensoren. Sie verwenden einen Temperatur- und einen Ultraschallsensor, um einen digitalen Zollstock zu bauen. Messergebnisse visualisieren Sie im Webbrowser mit JavaScript, HTML5 und CSS3. Sie können auch mit vorhandener Hardware herumspielen und werden sehen, wie leicht es ist, zum Beispiel den Nunchuk für Nintendo Wii in eigenen Programmen einzusetzen oder eine Infrarotfernbedienung zu konstruieren. Schritt für Schritt erschließen Ihnen die Projekte so alle Möglichkeiten, die sich mit Arduino bieten. Zu jedem Projekt gibt es den vollständigen Programmcode zum Download. Wenn Sie an Elektronik interessiert sind und besonders daran, Ihre eigenen Spielzeuge, Modelle und Ideen umzusetzen, haben Sie das richtige Buch gekauft. Und wenn Sie schon Software entwickelt haben - vorzugsweise in C/C++ oder Java -, bringen Sie die besten Voraussetzungen mit.
